A 3T bike with a Campagnolo groupset - you couldn't ask for a more classic combination! Campagnolo's eagerly awaited gravel groupset is here, and Ekar brings 1x13 speed wide-range shifting.

This is the RaceMax built in MAX form; which means wide, chunky tyres on a 650b wheelset, for tackling the roughest of terrain. Like all the Exploro RaceMax range it can easily be converted to a more road-focused machine with just a quick wheel swap.

An aero gravel bike? Yes, really. And it does make sense (every bit of extra speed helps, even off road), but those aero tubes taper out to a wide flat top profile to protect your water bottle from muck and grit.
